Speed 480 Question

Okay, Im ready to click "Buy" for the RETOM 480s for my Viper....one question. Will they Smoke my Pixie 20 Speed control that I use for the SP400s I currently have in it? I need a quick response because I gotta do this before the wifey gets home. Its only 50 bucks with the other crap Im getting but.....well.....you know.

Mr.Hat, What is a retom? If it is a standard 480 motor (not a hopped up or cobalt) the 20A will not be enough. You will need a 25+ amp rating for these motors . If you are going to run 1 esc for two motors you will smoke it.
